After a storms Friday washed out most krewes on the first big night of the official Carnival parade season, metro New Orleans moves on to a second packed day, with scattered showers giving away to clear skies through the afternoon into evening. Nearly a dozen krewes are scheduled to roll Saturday, from St. Tammany to the West Bank, and Metairie to Chalmette.
With West Bank parades scheduled to roll at 11:30 am, rain chances had dropped from 60 percent to 20 percent, with clear weather by evening.
On Friday, only Oshun slogged its way under a steady downpour on the Uptown route, while the other five parades were postponed. At least some parades are being rescheduled, with information pending on most.
